What is leasing?

Our new 24 month lease plans give you the flexibility to upgrade your phone after 12 months. And provided your phone is in good working order, you'll pay $99 when you then sign up to a new 24 month handset and service plan. What's more, because you won't take ownership of the phone, you could pay up to $10 less per month compared to some Go Mobile Plus handset and plan combinations. Minimum costs in the table below apply when the phone is returned in good working order. Find out more
